Description [ correction ]

Ntwetwe Pan is the western twin of Sua Pan with fossilised barchan dunes that once crept across the surface of the lake during a dry period but there are no granite outcrops. The pan covers a total area of ​​16,058 sq. Km; the largest salty depression complex in the world. In the North-Western part of the Ntwetwe Pan lies the Makgadikgadi National Park, that was established in 1992. There is an overnight camp is about as simple as possible, sleeping outside in bedrolls, with rudimentary toilet facilities, a table and some chairs. The camp is only operational during the dry season Jun/Oct when the surface of the salt pans is dry and hard. (May-18).
